Chase bit his lip. "Umm.. I think I'm clear today. Check the calendar."
"Good idea," she said as she clicked over to the family calendar they used to try to keep their activities more organized. She glanced at the date and announced, "It looks like you're clear." She paused, then asked. "Do you mind?"
Chase grinned. "Well since you asked so prettily," he teased as he came up behind her and kissed her neck.
And to think, it had only taken 10 years of marriage to get to this point... But the night where she'd broken down in tears also broke down some walls they'd been trying to pull down.
Chase laughed. "That's right. That's your brother. No poking," he said, gently moving her hand away from the crib. "I have an idea!" he said excitedly.
Chase grinned. "You bet. And I have a fun time planned for us tonight," he promised.
"What is it? What is it?" she asked anxiously.
Chase shook his head, wiggling his eyebrows. "Dinner first. And you have to eat your veggies without complaining."
"Awwww..." Eva moaned, but stopped abruptly, when Chase looked at her and raise his eyebrows.
Chase laughed at the funny face she made in an attempt to stop her grumbles, afraid that she'd lost already. He ruffled her hair. "Come on, let's get dinner and eat fast!"
Byron's chest puffed out. "It's just a little something I've been working on," he said.
"Don't fall!" Chase said, reaching out to steady Eva.
"I'll take care of everything, sugar," Yvonne said, shaking his hand.
Chase blanched as he followed behind her.
Eva shrugged, "Yeah, sure," she said. "I know."
Chase sighed. He decided to leave well enough alone. Apparently Yvonne would have to fix her relationship with Eva, as well.
"Of course," Chase said, grabbing a book and heading into her bedroom. He sat down next to her as she wiggled to get comfortable.
Chase gazed down at her and shook his head with wonder. She was just perfect!
"You got the contract!" Chase said, excited for her.
Yvonne bit her lip, somewhat anxiously. "This might mean I have to work a little bit more," she admitted cautiously. Before whenever she got a promotion, it caused tension between them because she'd had to work more. She waited for Chase to get testy...
But, Chase just nodded. "I figured. We'll work it out. Having that family calendar has really helped, though."
She released the breath she'd been holding and smiled with gratitude. "May I suggest we retire upstairs to celebrate?" she asked saucily.
